Sideproject with onion-dyed yarn
A group of eco dye bundles before opening, after being out overnight and then sitting in the sun for a while. Patience ie. letting the bundles just sit for days gives best results especially with iron, copper and other metals. With plant material the most crucial parts however seems to be pressing combined with steaming or boiling.
Paita getting boilt again, again and again, with various ingredients.
Resin from a fallen spruce. Foraged some in 2013, lost the whole bag until today when discovered it hanging outside on the wall of the granary. Intended future uses: Balm/pihkasalva, incense.
Asparagus is doing well. As of May 2014 it’s been three or four years since the planting of them and just as promised, they’re all of a sudden starting to look very nice.
Matkustuspaita during its last outing looked like this. After finishing both the body-piece and the sleeves, it was a good time to start questioning the overall shape and length of the hem of the body, so that eventually it was decided the body will not do and must be remade. Maybe I will finish it this summer then.
